a few decades is 30-40 years.

how about, 5 years ago it was a joke, and today it is slightly less of a joke.

Quake isnt a few decades old.

To state standards:

1 = one
2 = a couple
3 or 4 = a few
5 or more = a grip or a bunch, maybe a scad if you are from the east coast in 1920.

So a few is minimum 30 years, and there was no quake 30 years ago.

:D

I think we had a generation of sarcasm that was so strong a generation of jokes was created as a consequence.

Everything sports is entertainment. IMO. Compare that to doctors, teachers, nurse and police. Without entertainment those 4 jobs becomes boring.

State standards all you want, you won't find the arbitrary limit in the actual definition.

A few decades ago, people were playing Atari games. So I can see where they were coming from.

Highly competitive Missile Command, Combat, and Pong sound pretty farfetched.
